      Family seeks answers in 2011 murder of Randy Damond Rogers

      The Rogers family of Dillon County is holding a rally asking for the public's help in solving the murder of 31-year-old Randy Damond Rogers.

      The rally is called "Speak Up, Speak Out : Justice for Randy Damond Rogers". It will take place at New Hope Baptist Church on 131 Berry Circle in Latta Saturday at 4 p.m.

      It seeks to raise awareness that Rogers' murder remains unsolved and to raise money for a CrimeStoppers reward.

      Rogers' mother Linda Covington found him shot to death in her home on Buttonwood Drive in the Hamer community of Dillon December 16, 2011.

      His murder remains unsolved.

      "With the thought of knowing that whomever is responsible is still out on the street. I believe in my heart that someone knows. You know they know. The theme is speak up speak out . And the reason why it's that speak up speak out is because I want them to realize that we, it's our community, you know and we need to do something," said Covington.

      "There are some that know something but not talking. I don't know if its fear or what , but it would help. It would help," said Randy Rogers, Victim's Father.

      The family says they've prayed for answers for the past two years, but strongly believes they need to reach out to the community.

      "Regardless of how small the information is, you never know. They need to follow up with each and every lead that they're receiving. I believe with community input and with law enforcement following up with each and every lead they're receiving, I believe they will be able to solve this case," said Rosalind Sellers, Victim's Cousin.

      The Rogers family says they will never get over what happened to their loved one, but finding his killer will help them in the healing process.
